Overview

Written by a professor of geology at Cornell. First published in 1905. According to the Preface: "Geology is a science of such rapid growth that no apology is expected when from time to time a new text-book is added to those already in the field. The present work, however, is the outcome of the need of a text-book of very simple outline, in which causes and their consequences should be knit together as closely as possible,--a need long felt by the author in his teaching, and perhaps by other teachers also. The author has ventured, therefore, to depart from the common usage which subdivides geology into a number of departments,--dynamical, structural, physiographic, and historical,--and to treat in immediate connection with each geological process the land forms and the rock structures which it has produced.”
